There will be lots of Minions, Disney Princesses, and superheroes running around this Saturday at McGill’s Annual Halloween Carnival. The event starts at 4 p.m. at 26 Avenue F, in McGill.
Admission is free, and there will be many events to participate in such as a cake walk, face painting, bingo for adults and kids, a Haunted House, a sweet shop where you can pick out candy to purchase, in addition to a variety of foods such as nachos, hot dogs and frito boats.
Tickets can be purchased at the event to participate in the activities. The costume contest for infants to adults will begin at 6 p.m. and Mrs. Viv’s Dance Studio will be appearing with a flash mob. People are encourage to come dressed in costume.
This is an event that has become almost a tradition during Halloween in McGill. Since about 1967, this event has been put on every October before Halloween. Several of the student councils in the school district will be assisting with the carnival throughout the evening.
Sami Blackham, co-president of the Parent Teacher Student Organization, said “The community has been so awesome to help us out with organizing, gathering up donations, to participating.”
Prizes were donated from various businesses throughout the community. They are still in need of baked goodies, such as cakes, for the cake walk. You can drop off an item to the McGill Grade School Thursday or Friday.
